This is What the “Sharing Economy” Looks Like
The Verge took a look at Airbnb’s data in light of the New York attorney general’s beef with them:
But a review of the data by The Verge found that Airbnb’s numbers, covering November of 2014 through November 1st of 2015, largely confirmed the attorney general’s accusations. A small number of hosts renting out multiple listings took home a disproportionate amount of the total revenue. And while roughly 71 percent of hosts rented out their home for three months or less, there were still thousands of “whole units,” meaning an entire house or apartment, which were rented for six months or more during the last year.
This, my friends, is what the sharing economy looks like.
A few people at the top making the most the money.
